The acid test is whether you take any pleasure in responding to the question "What do you do?" I can't bear it.



Mob, I have not abandoned the restaurant tag. I'm simply stewing on it. Got one or two to ponder.

To give you some idea, as I asked Cinema Mark via email this evening, "Do you know how hard it is to navigate from the kitchen to the computer room with a very full margarita and Erasure playing on LP?" We were listening to Erasure, but by the time D got home (which indicates that I really should write "I," but then the incrimation factor raises exponentially), it was Art Garfunkel (the LP with "Bright Eyes," I totally fucking admit it) and now Herman's Hermits, which covers a very large range of things we've all heard before...

And now the enchiladas are almost done! Time for more of the second disc of Dr. Who; the first of this two-parter was a bit on the lame side, but it has potential to be sure...

No margaritas were harmed in the making of this episode.

I'm loathe to even watch a single episode of Dr. Who, as I have too much stuff to watch now without funneling 40 years of stuff on top of it, y'know?

I wouldn't assume you'd forgotten, I know you have a real job and such to attend to.

The *new* Dr Who is rad, I highly recommend so far. And it's from 2005, no biggie.

"Real job", *laughs, wipes away a tear.* Good one.

Mob said...

You have to leave the house to do it, which makes it way 'realer' than mine.

It probably also makes you more apt to do it, while I've been blowing stuff off recently and am now realizing that I'm running out of cash.

I need to save my sheckels, as I want to buy a handjob from Captain Spaulding when we go to the horror convention.

Ellen Aim said...

I would kill for a stay-at-home job, that would be so awesome. Fewer fucking people to tolerate.

Love the goal of a highly-sought handjob. Gotta have dreams!

Captain Spaulding handjobs are highly sought? Maybe the End is nigh.

The second half of the Doctor Who two-parter is no better, but Dalek makes up for it. And it sets things in motion that won't pay off until Series Two. Nifty.

Mac: Absolutely they're highly sought. Actually I have no idea. I asked D who CS was afterwards.

CSJ: Whew, it's not just me.

MacGuffin said...

You need to have a mental image of Captain Spalding to appreciate.. oh nevermind.

Ellen Aim said...

Oh holy jesus I just image-googled the man. and I just had the ever-living-fuck disturbed out of me.
